Good morning, Good morning, Gooooood morning! I’m really excited to write this blog today because I have been thinking about this topic for quite some time. While doing research about dieting It”s baffling just how much people do not get along when it comes to healthy eating. It’s very much like a gang mentality when it comes to beliefs. I’m aware that people with like-minded viewpoints tend to want to stick together, that comfort comes in the form of others giving them confidence by reaffirmation. I’m a man and when my girl tells me I’m right about something and backs up what I say, I do find myself feeling like a superhero. That doesn’t happen nearly as much as I think it should but that’s a topic for another time! Ha Ha.
Honestly, though it has gotten completely out control when it comes to dieting folks. It’s like a gang and if you’re down with Meat than you hate Vegetarians. If you like a Green Leafy Vegetables than your against those who eat Bacon! When did we get to the point that we had to be against something just because we are for something? I eat a low carb ketogenic diet because it makes me feel good and I love eating a lot of fat. I’ve found something that seems to work wonders for me but I’m under no assumption that it will work for everyone. In fact, I’m absolutely positive this diet will not work for everyone. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that at all. Truth be told it may not work for me after a long period of time because my taste for different foods may change and I may grow tired of the same exact type of eating.
We all know that we are all different and we can agree on that point, however when it comes to dieting it’s like we draw a line in the sand and say “oh hell no!” You do Keto, why the hell do you do that?” “You eat one meal a day, are you crazy that will never work for you!” Not only do we not understand each other’s needs and goals but we decide that one size fits all. The only way to truly lose weight is to be in a caloric deficit they will tell you. That’s great info but if you’re trying to gain weight than how does that help you? Even if your goal is to lose fat the whole caloric deficit thing is not always true. Some people can eat tons of calories and still lose weight, while others are strict as can be and lose hardly anything. There is no such thing as THE way to diet.
It’s really simple when you think about it. The best diet plan is the one that gets’s you the desired results you’re looking for! You could be doing it to shed a few pounds or to gain some. Maybe you’re eating a certain way for health reason like type 2 diabetes and other factors. I’m going to let you in on a little secret just about every way of dieting out there is right. People lose weight all the time by eating way over the calories that they should(I know your out there and I hate you all with a passion!) There are people who eat exactly the number of calories they are supposed to and run from New York to Colorado every day and don’t lose a single pound! I’m kidding of course but the truth is You may find that mixing it up will help give you the best results. If eating Keto is causing you anxiety and you’re not getting the desired effect then please don’t do it. It may work for you for say a year and then you notice you’re not losing any weight. If that’s the case maybe eating a high protein diet and exercise may trigger your weight loss if that’s your goal. Be flexible, you’re not going to listen to just one song for the rest of your life and no one is saying you have to stay on one plan your whole life either. Well actually they are saying it but I’m telling you those people suck. lol.
love to hear your thoughts on this topic as always! Have a wonderful day!
